Addictive Nature of Crystal Methamphetamine Williston ND

There are two things that are common in addictive drugs. Initially they produce a pleasurable effect, followed by a rebound unpleasant effect. Through its stimulant effects, an amphetamine produces a positive feeling, but when it wears off it leaves a person with the conflicting feelings.
